Did you terminate your parent child relationship or did you simply give them legal custody?
That will be tougher to do but courts always prefer that biological parents be caretakers of their children. If they voluntarily agree to give you custody, that would be optimal, otherwise you would have to file for guardianship in court.
Any friend of yours who could even execute an affidavit if they are not able to travel for a court hearing would be sufficient.
I would say go ahead and file and let the judge determine. Like I said, there is a strong presumption towards the biological mother. Would your employer be willing to execute an affidavit?
I see. Go ahead and file then.
That can be but the court would probably want you to have a steady job.
It is hard to predict something like that. Like I said, the courts do like the biological parents to remain involved with the children so that works in your favor.
Let me know if you have any additional questions. Otherwise a positive rating would be appreciated.
